Burnley vs Tottenham HotspurEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Sep 2, 2023, Turf Moor
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR will be targeting a third Premier League win on the trot when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Ange Postecoglou has made quite the impression since swapping Celtic for Spurs, with the Aussie enjoying an unbeaten start to life in England’s top-flight thus far.
After starting the season with a barnstorming 2-2 at Brentford, Tottenham have recorded a pair of impressive 2-0 wins over both Manchester United and Bournemouth respectively.
As a result, Spurs are sitting pretty in third place in the Premier League table and they will look to keep the feelgood factor flowing by beating newly-promoted Burnley this weekend.
After sweeping aside all before them in the Championship last season, Burnley have started the Premier League season with back-to-back losses against Manchester City and Aston Villa.
On paper, Vincent Kompany’s side have been handed a fairly tough start to the season, and things won’t get any easier this weekend when high-flying Tottenham come to town.
Burnley claimed top honours when the two sides last met at Turf Moor in February 2022 but the same outcome here is as big as 3/1 (BetVictor) while a point apiece has been priced up at 57/20 (Spreadex).
Tottenham Hotspur, who failed to win three Premier League games in a row last season, are 9/10 favourites with UniBet.
Tottenham will have their backers at the above-mentioned price, however I’m going to instead side with the 4/5 (William Hill) on the visitors to score two or more goals during this contest.
Spurs are enjoying a new lease of life under Ange Postecoglou, with the attack-minded Aussie already seeming to have successfully translated his high-intensity approach to his squad in his short time in the English capital.
That is evidenced by the fact that Tottenham have racked up seven points from a possible nine thus far, scoring exactly two goals in each of those three matches.
Therefore, Tottenham’s upward trajectory doesn’t bode well for a newly-promoted Burnley team that have endured a baptism of fire upon their return to the top-flight thus far.
Vincent Kompany’s crop have already shipped three goals in each of their opening two games of the season, however they are unlikely to sacrifice the forward-thinking principles that saw them storm back to the promised land in style at the first time of asking
With all that in mind, as well as the fact that this bet would have paid out in each of Tottenham’s opening three league games of the season, as well as banking in Burnley’s opening two bouts, siding with the same selection on Saturday holds appeal at 4/5 (William Hill).
After making a bright start to life in a Spurs shirt, I’ll also take James Maddison in the Score or to Assist market at 11/10 (PaddyPower).
Maddison has already chipped in with a goal and two assists this season and he looks worthy of interest to add to that tally at Turf Moor.
